Eddie Hearn had some words of praise for Johnny Fisher's dad. Big John Fisher has become somewhat of a celebrity himself as his son rises to fame in the boxing world. His humor and antics have made him famous in the UK boxing scene. During the press conference, Eddie Hearn revealed something bizarre about Big John Fisher:

"It is just the most incredible story. I mean Danny, Keith, you guys, this guy has sold over two-thousand tickets from his front room for this fight. For a six-round fight. You know, this doesn't exist in boxing. But you got a fight to take care of on Saturday night and I know that the job that your dad's done has been incredible jokes aside."

Big John Fisher has made sure to keep his son away from the business side of boxing so he can focus solely on perfecting his craft. This helps Johnny Fisher get the job done inside the ring with immense support from his dad.

'The Romford Bull' will look to take his unbeaten streak to 5-0 on Saturday night. He will take on Gabriel Enguema on the undercard of the Jacobs vs. Ryder card.
